Jera "Pink" Vinton
A native Vermonta', and lifelong fisherman, Jera("Pink"), moved to the Salida area in '86, and after running whitewater for 14+ years, he "evolved" into one of the original ArkAnglers float guides. After spending the past 6 years living out East and chasing lunkers, from Maine stripers to New York steelhead, he has returned and is fullfilling his dream by living on the banks of the Arkansas, where beautiful fish are mere spitting distance from his backdoor. Though his specialty is float trips, he also has extensive experience hiking for high mountain cutthroats and stalking lakes for "beastly" carp.
Pink enjoys many outdoor activities, including ski patrolling in the winter, but ultimately, "fishing is what truly floats my boat". His stories can be found on his web page, "Blue Balls Diaries", on www.flyfishsalida.com.
